WhatsApp group, Chembera Group today donated two wheelchairs to Mbera Health Centre in Balaka following a request from the health center.
Speaking after donating the wheelchairs chairperson of the group Frank Jomo said as sons and daughters from Mbera felt duty bound to donate the wheelchair because ever since the hospital was opened it has had no wheelchair to ease mobility of patients.
“This is the community that has raises us and when we were asked to help them with a wheelchair we felt duty bound to do that. This is the first time Mbera Health Centre has a wheelchair. We are a WhatsApp group comprising of sons and daughters of Mbera and our wish is to help in the socioeconomic development of our area,” said Jomo.
A medical assistant at the centre Gift Kunimba thanked the group for coming to the rescue of the centre. He said patients were being carried on the guardians back when coming out of ambulances or even within the walls of the health centre.
